on keeping a Commonplace Book

Working on creating a digital Commonplace book for all the wonderful things I come across during the day. Probably going to use Day One. I’m inspired by Holiday’s article on Commonplace books and a series of posts about them on The Sweet Setup.

I’ve tried doing it more visually, a digital Bullet Journal, but couldn’t follow through. I loved the difference in taking notes by hand—and, of course, it reminded me of drawing—but it seemed slow, and not taking advantage of all the digital approach had to offer. The idea of having a running journal of all I find interesting and worthy of jotting down does have its merits.
